How to choose a afforadable and quality folding knife for yourself?
If you are buying a tool with a very limited budget, you must consider the price. Usually you can buy a very good pocket knife with a budget of more than 100$, but the budget of 100$ is not affordable for everyone who wants to have a pocket knife. The most ideal price should be between 20$-50$, and the price varies according to the material and structure of the tool.
For the price of 20$-50$, the blade material can be D2, 12C27, 12C48N, 440C, 8CR13Mov, 9CR13Mov.The blade material is always important as it determines just well the model will last. As the type of material, large of people will choose D2 knives. And the other thing is steel use. Not all the stainless steel types are great in terms of performance and durability. What you do is being sure the type that you get to choose can deliver on impressive durability and retain the edge for longer.
The handle plays an important role when it comes to the ergonomics. It is the reason you might want to get a model that delivers on the best ergonomics with the design and material of the handle. Of the price $20~50$ ,common materials include Plastic, Wood, G-10, and Micarta. Each of these materials are good in terms of making sure you end up with a good performance knife for outdoor working.
4.Locking Secure Mechanism
You always have to look at the locking mechanism. The common mechanisms include the manual opening, switchable or automatic, and assisted opening mechanism. You are likely to get the manual method being common but you can also get the others in some common knives. All are good to some extent. This will all depend on the personal preference so that you can end up with the best knife for you.
